Investing in sustainable energy: wind & solar — blowing hot and cold

World Sustainable Energy Days (4 – 6 March 2020) is an annual sustainability conference held in Austria. It hosts events centred on sustainable energy production and use, which covers energy efficiency and renewable energy sources for buildings, industry and transport.

In part one of a three part series we take a closer look at what’s driving the energy transition from fossil fuels to renewables. We also delve into how wind and solar are the dominant forms of renewable energy in the UK and pose the question: how do we store this energy?
